4Gamer.net has published a new interview with FromSoftware president and Elden Ring director Hidetaka Miyazaki, who reveals that the unannounced title remaining from the publication’s 2018 interview with Miyazaki is in the final stages of development, and that the next title directed by Miyazaki himself is already in the works.
Get the interview snippets below.
When we interviewed you about Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice in 2018, you said there were 3.5 development lines underway, two of them unannounced. Elden Ring ended up one of the unannounced titles, but is the other one still in development?
Hidetaka Miyazaki: “Yes, development is currently in the final stages.”
What are your goals as a director? with Elden Ring wrapped up, is there anything that you want to do in the future or are interested in doing?
Miyazaki: “I’m already working on my next title as a director, so I’d like to avoid giving too much away there… In the mid-to-long term, I would like to work on a more abstract fantasy than anything we’ and done in the past.”
Finally, with Elden Ring settled, what is the state of FromSoftware’s game development going forward?
Miyazaki: “First off, we’re going to continue releasing updates for Elden Ring. Also, as I’ve mentioned before, we’re developing several titles by directors other than myself in addition to the title that I’m directing, but we’re not at the stage where I can share any details yet. My apologies, but please give us a little more time.”
FromSoftware also began recruiting development staff for “several new projects.” Potential applicants can apply here.
